The 2013 growing season was another near perfect year. With only a day or two approaching 100 degrees, temperatures were steady and in the sweet spot of 85°-95°F. Dry conditions throughout allowed for ideal maturation and flavor concentration. On the palate the 2013 Mt. Brave Merlot shows dark cherry and spice. A note of salty chocolate carries the aromatic with great texture. Well balanced with typical Mount Veeder acidity.
